A Piece of Me Died Today

Today I loaded up my second most prize possession.  All my tropical plants and citrus trees have been transported to a place they will survive.  To nevermore be seen.  I realize this may sound silly to some of you but plants are my "thing". I love re- potting, watching them grow, waiting for the blooms, smelling the flowers for months at a time. This was my hobby. A little piece of my soul died today. 

To put salt in my wound, I googled "plants that live in boise" and this was the picture that came up...  just dirt.  Great.

Blessing Day

This picture is really what this day is all about.  All the people who came to show their love for our family and be remembered in Claire's Baby book forever.  The blessing is one thing, but this picture will be in her family history for "ever".  Thanks for coming everyone, we felt loved.  (disclaimer:  Ryan Ward and his sweet family also came, which will be noted in said baby book. )

Baby Claire at 1 month old. 

New family picture.  

 Better picture of very fancy, beautiful dress from Grandma Jean.  One of our traditions is to let Grandma Jean choose the blessing outfits for all the children.  She has never let us down and always out does herself. Thank you.
